Tea Bush And Care Notes Gift Set

Did you know that there’s a tiny microclimate in Cornwall, which is actually able to sustain a tea estate?

Well, now you do. Tregothnan is the first ever tea estate in Britain, and as such, we can promise you that the unique flavours of the tea (from a rather unique terroir) are unlike any tea you’ve tried before.

You can actually purchase one of these little tea bushes for your home, turning the age-old question of “Do you want a brew?” to “Do you want a brew… made from the tea bush that I’ve grown?”

 

 

Sugar Bowl and Spoon

This sugar bowl is sure to be the envy of all your friends. The beautiful stoneware bowl was crafted in Portugal, and was inspired by the blue of the ocean and the white of the sand. The hand-painted exterior is finished off with a crackled glaze – immediately becoming a top eye-catcher in your tea collection.

Can you imagine anything more perfect for serving up sugar cubes at afternoon tea?

Tin Humidor

We’ve spoken before about the best ways to store loose leaf tea, and throughout our research, we found this incredible tin humidor. It’s perfect for keeping tea fresh and maintaining the pristine quality and taste of the leaves.

Designed to provide optimal conditions for storing tea, this humidor has a double wall for two-way humidity control, with a unique design protecting the tea from contaminants. By keeping out light, you can also ensure that the lifespan of the tea is extended. What more could you want?

 

 

Tealeidoscope Teapot

This absolutely gorgeous teapot is inspired by the entrancing colours and designs of Morocco, as seen through a kaleidoscopic lens. Incorporating the famous Majorelle blue, this piece is sure to become a statement piece in your teaware collection.

Made from fine bone china and trimmed with lovely metallic gold-tone touches, this lively piece is a great way to spice up your morning brew. If you close your eyes, you can almost hear the hustle and bustle of a sunny Marrakesh market…

 

 

The Great Kanagawa Tea Cushion Cover

Do you have an art lover in your life, does she also have a passion for tea? Well, look no further than this wonderful cushion cover.

As all art lovers know, The Great Wave is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai, and is praised across the globe for its beauty. This cushion cover puts a quirky spin on the classic art piece, making it perfect for both showing off a love for tea and a love for classic Edo woodblock artists.

This vintage tea trolley is sure to become the most chic item in your home, with its warm tones and stylish design. Ideal for showing off your tea collection, tea books, and of course, your potted tea bush, this one-of-a-kind 1960s tea trolley will spice up any living room.

 

 

Herbivore Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner

Green tea is known for having multiple internal health benefits – but did you know that it’s also great for your skin?

This toner has a base of jasmine water, green tea, and aloe vera, bringing a sense of balance to combination, oily, or blemish-prone skin. It’s light and easy to apply, and ensures that you’ll wake up feeling fresh and ready to start the day.

 

 

Origami Giraffe Tea Strainer

For a tea lover, having a little fun with your tea strainer style is a rite of passage. This adorable little tea strainer has a polymer origami giraffe charm hanging at the other end, ensuring that not only do you lose the metal strainer, but you get to show off your funky brew accessory choice.

You can order the charm in any colour you like, and the strainer itself is big enough to let the leaves unfurl during brewing – making sure that you’re getting the best taste from the tea leaves.

 

 

Personalised Tea Spoon

What better way to tell someone you love them than by gifting them a personalised tea spoon. This hand-stamped vintage silver-plated spoon is great for leaving a little message (such as “You’re my cup of tea.”), a special date, the name of the loved one, of even important coordinates that mark a special place for the two of you.

The ideas are endless – and you can be sure that each time they reach for a spoonful of sugar, they’ll be left with a smile on their face.

 

 

30 Tea Cultures: Tea Course

Have you ever taken a tea course before? Well, even if you have, you certainly haven’t taken one like this.

In this online tea course, you will learn about the basics of tea, different tea processing methods, the histories, myths, and stories surrounding tea, traditional brewing methods in rural and nomadic societies, the health benefits (and disadvantages) of tea, different types of tea ceremonies, and how to say the word ‘tea’ in a variety of languages across the globe. Not only that, but you’re offered an in-depth view to the 30 top tea cultures around the world. Bet you didn’t learn that one at school.

 

 

Bodhi Leaf Tea Strainer

This must be one of the most beautiful tea strainers in the world. Handmade from natural ingredients – namely, the bodhi leaf – it’s the perfect little gift for a tea-loving mother.

Of course, every leaf strainer is unique, with a translucent body and silvery immortalised veins. It’s easy to use, and works perfectly for straining tea leaves in an unconventional and fun way.

 

 

Colour Changing Tea Pet

Tea pets are cute little ceramic or resin critters that sit beside you as you enjoy a cup of tea. The idea is that when you wash the leaves with hot water to open them up and “wake up” the flavour, instead of wasting the tea, you “feed” it to the tea pet. They’re little talismans that bring you peace and joy during tea ceremonies.

This tea pet is a colour-changing toad, which is often referred to as Chan Chu, the “money toad.” It represents a popular Feng Shui charm for prosperity. Along with that, it carries two strings of copper coins on its back, supposedly enhancing the wealth of the tea pet owner.

Why not give a friend a little wealth-generating talisman?
